Penguins

 

Brancusi PenguinsThis work, done in white marble is another sculpture using the oval theme.
Brancusi's Penguins express a feeling of tenderness, they retain a human sense in their gentle movements. They seem like 2 close by humans
that are searching for mutual support. The Sculpture emanates a sense of trust, togetherness, solidarity.
One of the sources of inspiration seems to be the book of Anatole France, The Island of the Penguins , a book that has enjoyed great popularity in that time.
